 Crank Puppets Tinkering 

Crank Puppet Tinkering

During the month of March
Design and build your own simple machine. Learn the basics of mechanics, including gear ratios, cams and followers. Bring to life a mechanical machine that dances and twirls or jumps and shakes as you get to choreograph all your character’s moves. 

A new activity featured every month!

Inside the IDEA Lab there is a tinkering space, located at the front of the learning world, which features monthly activities that are open to the public and included with admission. You can stop by for a few minutes or a few hours to tinker around on a creation that’s all your own.
